I think it was him and it will be the trigger that sends Brody on a drama filled tirade in the finale.
But is he really dead??
The dirty blonde dingbat appeared perplexed.
But as this is her default setting -when not looking totally psycho-
it could mean anything, meds etc?
Something was not right with the whole removal of body and bus crew.
Totally agee that this would have been better done by HBO.

SPOILER ALERT



I think Abu Nazir getting captured or killed was part of the plan, and there'll be a secondary attack by Brody in the finale. I have problems with this show, because it's unrealistic to an absurd degree. Brody killing the Vice President, and there's no surveillance in his office? Claire Danes making mistake after mistake, no debrief after she was captured, and released by Nazir. The most unrealistic thing is him picking Claire Danes over Morena Baccarin.

I bitch about this to my wife everytime we watch it.

I guess some guys prefer the whole "she understands me" more then a hot bod.

I finally gave this a shot and have enjoyed it so far. I think Claire Danes does an excellent job and deserves all of the awards she has received.

Even though I don't have Showtime, I'm still able to watch in on Xfinity.

Awesome show.

Full of cool tips. Like I will now often tell my wife to take her shirt off so I can look at her boobs and jerk off on her knees.

Yeah, she doesn't think it's as funny as I do.

Does anyone else think that Danes and Patankin are going to turn out to be Muslims or at least sympatizers, and have been turned since 911? That grin on his face at the end, standing in the tent with all the dead bodies, after he spoke to his wife...and the Muslim family always asking about her? That is my prediction...based on nothing.

A ton of shows are available at no extra cost. Unfortunately, Game of Thrones isn't one of them.

Saw the season opener and must admit I was not impressed. I watched the complete 2nd season again and have to say that the acting seems really bad or something. Seems even worse this season. I just wish it would be more to reality, as I just refuse to believe that anyone as batshit crazy as Dane's character would ever even be allowed close to any ops or Agency personnel...certainly not to approach the Director at will. Unless the next few episodes do a 180 I dont see myself watching the rest of the season, unless really bored.

Small correction: Hatufim ran two seasons. IMO it is more plausible than the American version, and moves along a bit faster. Two seasons is about enough for any story line.

We've been watching Hatufim on DVD, but it was on Hulu as I recall.

Last night's episode was a bit boring. The storyline with Brody's daughter is getting tiring, but it usually has her Mom in it which is great! Carrie is becoming hard to watch...her features just make me regret I ever thought she was hot. I do like the Agency scenes, and the dude that plays Quinn is interesting. It's almost as if the whole Carrie/Brody aspect of the show is no longer relevent. He shows up in the next episode, and I recall in a vid clip I saw a few weeks ago they have him bald now. Ugh.

I grew tired of the daughter last season and fast forwarded through most of her parts on the recent episode. They have too many story lines going. Some are interesting and others suck. I hope they have an end in sight and don't drag this out for several years.

I felt the same way during that scene and hit FF. I figured this was coming after she took the topless photo of herself last week.

I agree with your comment about Clare. She has that scary, crazy bitch look going on.

I liked what Saul said to the new analyst about the way she dressed. That's exactly how people would feel in that situation and it was very non-PC.

So far, season 3 has been a huge disappointment. I thought the last episode sucked and the preview for next week doesn't look any better.

Wow, I'm really enoying this season, I thought last episode was fucking amazing. The level of detail is really up there, minus of course using only 2 cops to capture a wanted terrorist worth 10 million.


I agree on the daughter, I'm ready for that entire story line to simply fade away.

This show, as bad and boring as it can be at times, is still light years better than TWD which is turning out to be a huge dissapointment.

Can not argue with that statement one bit!! I love the fast forward button during the scenes involving her. Damian Lewis IMO is an exceptional actor, and I have enjoyed his detailed acting since starring in Band of Brother's.

Last night's episode gives me hope the season is going to be a good one...at least in the US. Not too sure about the part with Brodie, that seems really over the top.

The daughter's storyline continues to be gruelling. And can we go ahead and get a good sex scene with the wife and Brodie's buddy Mike?
